Nominations for the 2019/2020 Student Representative Assembly (SRA) election are now open, and will close on February 28 at 5 PM. For the nomination form, the number of seats in the SRA for each faculty, and important documents for running in the election, click here.
The Student Representative Assembly (SRA), the governing body of the MSU, is composed of 31 undergraduate students elected by their peers, inside each academic faculty. Together, they work to provide the best possible MSU services and departments, represent and address the concerns of undergraduate students, and lobby the University to improve McMaster’s academic quality.
“If you have a passion for leadership, collaboration, and improving the student experience, the SRA is a great way of advocating on behalf of students to create positive change at McMaster,” says Elizabeth Wong, MSU Speaker. “Previous MSU experience is not necessary in order to serve as an assembly member.”
The timeline for the SRA nominations and election period is as follows:
Nominations: February 7 - February 28 at 5 PM
